By a vote of 106 ayes and 2 abstentions, a majority quorum of precinct chairs elected Choco Meza (photo) County Chair of the Bexar County Democratic Party at tonight's meeting of the County Executive Committee (CEC). Meza will serve out the remainder of the two-year term of Dan Ramos who was removed by the CEC as County Chair on May 3 for misconduct and neglect of duty.
Meza is a Texas member of the Democratic National Committee and has a long history of involvement in Democratic politics and campaigns. She was a candidate for County Chair in the 2010 Democratic Primary, but lost the election to Mr. Ramos. Meza was endorsed by the Bexar County Young Democrats, Northeast Bexar County Democrats and Stonewall Democrats of San Antonio prior to her election as interim County Chair.
